Deal between Sassa and Post Office for social grants expected next week

Deal between Sassa and Post Office for social grants expected next week”

According to the South African Social Security Agency (SASSA), funds will become available for collection at ATMs and all other payment channels from November 28.

The Constitutional Court has ordered Sassa to take over social grants payments by March 2018.

However‚ Sassa attempted to stiff the Post Office by saying the state owned entity did not have the capacity to help it serve much of the functions CPS assisted with.

The Democratic Alliance's Lindy Wilson says Dlamini has been leading Parliament on a merry-go-round, while Congress of the People's Willy Madisha maintains she's deliberately undermining the Post Office.

An agreement will be signed next Friday and sent to Parliament the following week. We want to craft the program of action we have embarked upon.

The Joint Committee welcomed the statement presented by the IMC on the decision it has taken to fast-track the introduction of an integrated payment system, which will be provided by government through a partnership between Sassa and the South African Post Office. "The committee met on Tuesday to consider progress on the implementation of the Constitutional Court order", Radebe said.

"Treasury confirmed the hybrid model for the payment of grants".

MPs were addressed by the inter-ministerial committee (IMC) on social security, chaired by Minister Jeff Radebe, after it received an intervention report from National Treasury on the stalled deal this week.

The meeting on Wednesday morning was attended by delegations from the departments of telecommunications and postal services, state security, social development, the Hawks, Sapo and the Treasury.
